Please don't use S&D as a dumping ground for crank theories. It is meant to be used for debunking credible claims.

I recently watched this documentary online. It is basically a look at the universe from a plasma cosmology perspective, back to the time of nobel laureate Hannes Alfven. As of yet i have seen no debunking site about the 'electric universe' model.

It has been endorsed by:
- Gerrit L. Verschuur,
PhD, University of Manchester. A well-known radio astronomer and writer, presently at the Physics Department, University of Memphis.
- Lewis E. Franks, PhD, Stanford University, Fellow of the IEEE (1977), Professor Emeritus and Head of the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Massachusetts
- Timothy E. Eastman, PhD, Head of Raytheon's space physics and astrophysics groups. He is well known for his work on magnetospheric boundary layers and the initial discovery of the Low Latitude Boundary Layer.
- Anthony L. Peratt, PhD, USC, Fellow of the IEEE (1999), former scientific advisor to the U.S. Department of Energy and member of the Associate Laboratory Directorate of the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

there are more, but i think i made my point. Its not another typical crank theory, it does have academic support.

Is there anyone that can debunk some of their claims?

Plasma cosmology


This is not the sort of thing that we address here. Please read the posting guidelines.

We explore claims of and evidence for unexplained phenomena; not theories. If a theory has qualifed for publication in a reputable, peer-reviewed, mainstream journal, then it belongs in a regular forum. If not, then it has no place anywhere at PF - for the moment, at least, consider it debunked.
